    Thanks, Alma.
    I too have found Sarah's father, John (of Bradford), his first and second wives (Maria Penelope and Frances Elizabeth) and her brother John, but still Sarah's records for 1871 &81 remain tantalisingly elusive.
    at the moment I'm trawling through using not only the name Sarah Alice Bowles, bit also Maud Alice Selman ( as this is the name she put on her daughter's birth certificate) and Sarah Alice Selman, as it seems logical.
    I'm convinced the Sarah and Davis Selman never actually married, but I think I'm looking for her at an address that might link to him. I'm also looking in Southampton, as that's where her daughter seems to have cropped up as a Nurse Child. I cant imagine Sarah abandoning her baby so far from bath, unless she was an absent parent while with Selman.
    Thanks again
